Welcome to Empowered Bible Study Ministries

Bible study is essential to our Christian walk. As we study God's Word, our personal relationship with God grows deeper and deeper. It empowers us to live for the Lord in every aspect of our lives. This is what has inspired me to do an online Bible study.

Many years ago my husband introduced me to a commentary on the book of Colossians and I was so blessed as the Scripture came to life before my very eyes. Since that day we have developed an extensive library and enjoy studying God's Word.

I have prepared some Bible studies that I would like to share with you. My prayer is that they will bless you as much as they have blessed me in preparing them. I pray your life is touched and that it would inspire you to live every moment of every day for Christ.

Trust with all your Heart

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct your paths." ~ Proverbs 3:5-6

The scripture here is in the imperative mode meaning that this is a command. My friend, we are commanded to Trust in the Lord with all our heart and not to lean on our own understanding.

There are times in our lives when we simply do not understand why God has allowed a specific adversity in our lives. There are times when we ask "Why?", "Where is God?", "Doesn't He care?” My friend, this is when we need to lean on God's wisdom and not our own as God sees the bigger picture and is in total control.

In verse six, the word direct means to make straight. So it can be translated "In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct, or make straight, your paths". Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 7:13 "Consider the work of God; for who can make straight what He has made cooked?" We must keep our focus on God. Only he can make our paths straight, only He can lead us in the way we should go.

I encourage you to write Proverbs 3:5-6 down and carry it with you as a reminder to fully trust God in all the details of your life.
